LGL Local Materials Development

Research and development into economical and sustainable building techniques, utilising locally available skills and materials. This project used locally available vegetation for non-structural building components, including walls, ceilings and floor coverings, and developed cement stabilised clay pavers as an alternative to a concrete slab.

The project encourages sustainable infrastructure and business development by drawing on local skills and materials and provides a building technology that, in future, is independent of outside technical or financial assistance.
